Need and ID Please

Hello. I purchased this plant at a local shop and it was located next to some dyckia. I am assuming that it is in the bromeliad family. It's leaves are spiny like and it produces pups from the base of the upper leaves. Also, the pups are flowering. I have tried looking it up online, but to no avail. I had to use the camera on my phone so the pictures arn't great, but hopefully good enough.

Thanks in advance

That looks like Orthophytum 'Warren Loose' but I can't see the leave markings well even to be more certain.

Hi Ross,

Yes it certainly looks like an Orthophytum to me also, but which one I don't know as I'm not really up on this genera.

All the best, Nev.

RE: Need and ID Please

Definitely Orthophytum, and Warren Loose (a cv. of O. gurkenii) does seem like the most likely candidate.

Here is a link that might be useful: O. Warren Loose

RE: Need and ID Please

Thank you all so much! After looking at pics online I agree that it is probably the Warren Loose!

Thanks again!
